  1. Future-proofing the Technology – Addressing the Challenge Dr Liz Lyon, UKOLN, University of Bath, UK Collaboration for Sustainability Conference Bath, October 2004. UKOLN is supported by: www.bath.ac.uk www.ukoln.ac.uk a centre of expertise in digital information management

  2. Overview • Exploring the Global Knowledge Space • Interoperability, infrastructure & standards • Digital preservation & digital curation • Supporting the community • Closing remarks Collaboration for Sustainability Conference 2004

  3. 1. Exploring the Global Knowledge Space

  4. Lindisfarne Gospels Collaboration for Sustainability Conference 2004

  5. Collaboration for Sustainability Conference 2004

  9. 2. Interoperability, infrastructure & standards

  10. The Life Cycle Approach Creation Repackaging Management Access Collection development Collaboration for Sustainability Conference 2004

  11. Towards a common infrastructure? • e-Learning Framework • Technical Framework to support E-Learning http://www.cetis.ac.uk/members/frameworks/index.html • JISC Information Environment • Technical architecture based on open standards (Web Services, OAI-PMH, Z39.50, RSS…..)http://www.ukoln.ac.uk/distributed-systems/jisc-ie/arch/ • Virtual Research Environment • Framework options e.g. CHEF, Chandler, SAKAI, ?? • Common Information Environment • A cross-sectoral vision • Demonstrators • Ariadne article http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue39/miller/ Collaboration for Sustainability Conference 2004

  12. The E-Learning Framework (ELF) Collaboration for Sustainability Conference 2004

  13. JISC Information Environment architecture Collaboration for Sustainability Conference 2004

  14. Common Information Environment Collaboration for Sustainability Conference 2004

  15. Z39.50 SRW OAI RSS DC METS MPEG7 MPEG DIDL UDDI WSDL SOAP …. JPEG GIF UK LOM Core WSRP URI DOI OWL HTTP VRML SMIL XHTML RDF ….. Standards, standards, standards Collaboration for Sustainability Conference 2004

  16. Why advocate a standards culture? • Open standards • Maximise access • Platforms and delivery channels • Widest range of users • Avoid proprietary lock-in • Vendor independent • Integrate with other initiatives • eLearning e.g. Curriculum Online • Economic benefits • Delivering value-for-money • Return-on-investment • Ensure long-term availability of digital assets • Digital preservation and curation Collaboration for Sustainability Conference 2004

  17. Resources Digital Physical Item-level Collection-level Services Human-mediated m2m Common Domain-specific Functions Discovery Management Preservation & curation Metadata schema e.g. Dublin Core, UK LOM Core, METS Application profiles Schema registries Publication Mapping A few words about metadata Collaboration for Sustainability Conference 2004

  18. 3. Digital preservation & digital curation

  19. Why advocate a digital preservation / curation policy? • Long-term access to digital assets • Preservation approaches • Emulation, migration • LOCKSS • Universal Virtual Computer • OAIS reference model • Preservation metadata • Provenance • Persistent identifiers Collaboration for Sustainability Conference 2004

  27. Technical Standards & Guidelines • Document origins and influence • JISC Information Environment architecture • e-Government Interoperability Framework (e-GIF) • Life-cycle approach • Creation, management, collection development, access, repackaging • Vocabulary • “must”, “should”, “may” • Revisions • New standards • New guidelines on implementation • Latest version February 2003 • http://www.ukoln.ac.uk/nof/support/ Collaboration for Sustainability Conference 2004

  28. Collaboration for Sustainability Conference 2004

  29. Collaboration for Sustainability Conference 2004

  30. Reporting & Compliance • Working in partnership with BECTa • Compliance monitoring service • Quarterly reporting process • Validation against published standards e.g. accessibility, (X)HTML conformance • Difficult to assess all aspects • Valid reasons e.g. immature standards, lack of tools, cost of implementation • Document with migration strategy • Project sign-off • Pragmatic advice & recommendations • Estimated >85% compliance Collaboration for Sustainability Conference 2004

  33. 5. Closing remarks

  34. Observations • Evolving technical landscape • Big issues • Semantic interoperability • Persistent identifiers • Awareness of new developments • e.g. NISO VIEWS Initiative • Embedding standards (and skills) • Integrating within the workflow Interoperability and innovation: a delicate balance Collaboration for Sustainability Conference 2004
